Recommend me a shop/ski tech in Park City

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I've just committed to buying (privately, not from a shop) a pair of second-hand (but unused and unmounted) children's skis and bindings, thanks to Epic's gear listings. I live in NZ and the skis currently live in California, but my daughter won't need them until I get to Park City in January, so it makes sense to have them sent there. The vendor is going on holiday in late December and will need to send them before he leaves, while we won't be in Utah until early January. It would therefore make sense to ship them straight to a ski shop in Park City to be mounted and ready to go when we arrive. I'd have to check it out with the shop first obviously, but was wondering if any of you have some suggestions for who I could email, that would be prepared to hold onto them for a week or two before we get there? Thanks in advance.

Do NOT under any circumstances send them to PCMR (Park City Mountain Resort).  If they can't keep track of the lease to their property, I wouldn't trust them with your skis.

 

Needing a little extra service as you do I suggest Jans and Coles, commonly owned and near the base of PCMR.

PCMR is not,actually,a shop...but the lifts will be running. Jans and Coles are great shops and can help you out. Goggle them and send an email.

The reference was to PCMR's recently having physically lost their lease which may be followed by loss of their ongoing leased interest and right to operate the resort.  You could get work done at their shop, if one were so inclined.
